    Been a while

    I seem to have times where I want to commit to writing a blog regularly. Then other times where the thought of sitting down to write a post makes me not even touch my laptop for weeks. This is because I love the idea of having a blog that becomes my main income stream. But the reality of that is going through the soul-destroying tasks of posting on multiple Facebook groups and commenting on blog posts that I’m not really that interested in. Why? I’m going to blog how I want when I want and share it with who I want. I going to read and comment on other blogs…

    Boost your writing

    For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a writer. It hasn’t always been something I have actively persued, I left it at the back of my mind until I stumbled into blogging six years ago. Since then, I have been writing almost daily, in many different areas and exploring different styles to boost my writing.   You see, if you want to boost your writing, there really is only one way that you can do this, by writing daily. It doesn’t matter what you write, all you have to do to start is to put pen to paper. Don’t worry about what you are writing, just write.…

  • Life Lately ~ Update on our Slowly Lived Journey ~ Slowly Lived

    Life lately

    Starting this blog last December, my aim was to document and discuss how we can all live a slower paced life. To share our triumphs and failures, things I’d found along the way as well as my own ideas, yet somehow, I seem to have gotten lost along the way. Life, as usual, has been too busy, even though I have tried to be intentional and slow things down. With the end of my studies, I thought things would improve but these last couple of months of the school year are always jam-packed, full of sporting and academic activities, parental involvement and lots of travelling. Add to this mix work, both from home…

    Authentic Blogging: Finding your voice

    Have you found your authentic voice? I’ve been blogging for the past six and a half years, in many different areas, under different names. Blogging as both myself and as a ghost writer, earning money and doing it out of a passion for the subject. Over the past couple of years, the blogging community has grown and changed, with many of those who started with me leaving or taking a big step back, something I did the last few years. I did still post every now and then but for some reason, the passion I once felt had gone. It is so easy to get caught up in the numbers…
